Let's see, I am not sure I've ever been happier to see spring arrive than I have been this year. (Aside from maybe the year I took spring break in Padre Island, Texas before even turning 18, but that was a long long, very long time ago!) So, it wasn't hard to get motivated to do a garden this year.

And even more exciting was when my good friend Lois showed up one day with pansies in hand! Ready to put them right into the ground -- I was so impressed AND inspired! So, this weekend the girls and I added peas and carrots. There is nothing like the feeling of sunshine on your back and the ground breaking in your hands. I look forward to seeing our garden grow and blossom. I hope we'll have food to share sometime this summer!
